For the fall 2020 schedule, we will finish the Mainstream class, and hold workshops at the MS, Plus, Advanced, and C1 programs, beginning whenever we agree it’s safe to restart dancing. There may be a possibility of offering a Plus class in the spring. The Caller Liaison Committee will work with our callers to come up with proposal for who will teach which workshops.
Time and Location
All Tuesday night classes/dances/workshops run from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m and are held at the Lutheran Church of the Holy Communion. We use the entrance at 2111 Sansom St., Philadelphia, PA.
Prepayment includes all Tuesday classes and dances/workshops in a prepayment period. If prepayment is not paid by the second night of each prepayment period, the dancer must pay the payment-at-the-door rate through the remainder of the current period.
Prepayment is only available as a payment option to dues-paid club members (Independence Squares or other square dance clubs) and first-time Mainstream class students.
Prepayment and door fees will be posted by the end of the summer.
Dues are $45 annually for the period from June 1 through May 31 of the following year, whenever paid, and are due before – or at – the club’s annual meeting in the spring. All dancers are eligible for dues-paid club membership after completion of a full Mainstream program class. Each member owes dues whether or not he/she is taking a class and/or workshop. Dancers attending a Mainstream class for the first time do not owe dues.
Members who need assistance paying dues are welcome to speak confidentially with our treasurer.
Bad Weather Cancellation Policy
If Philadelphia schools have an early dismissal, are closed, or cancel afternoon or evening activities due to bad weather, then Tuesday night classes and workshops are cancelled. Some resources for finding out if schools are closed:
